Camden Vaughn jumped into action when his mother Misty passed out. 

Camden grabbed his mom's cellphone, unlocked it and found his dad's phone number under the favorites list to get in touch with his dad Sunday night.

"He said, 'Daddy I need you to come home! Mommy can't get in the bath because she can't wake up!' And I said: 'I'm on my way!," Camden's dad, Dr. Jeremy Vaughn told WFAA.

Misty said she thought she had the flu and her fever kept rising. The last thing she remembers the thermometer reading 105.

Her doctor thinks she had a seizure and that Camden's call saved her life, WFAA reported.
